Q. Why is music important to you?

I have had so much fun being in the marching band. I have made so many great friends and have memories they will last a lifetime.
Dill: Music is the “Sole of America.” I enjoyed music that was arranged by our own band director, Mr. Nick Olesko. I enjoyed my time in marching band.
